You don't have to buy a ticket in advance, because in ICE/IC/EC trains it's allowed to buy tickets from the conductor. But they will charge a onboard service fee (12,50 EUR).

If you buy in advance, it is cheaper. But you should not buy a "savers fare ticket/Sparpreis" from Oberhausen to Amsterdam, because with that ticket you are bounded to ICE 250, and if the ICE from Munich to Cologne has a delay and you miss the connection to ICE520, you would have to buy a new ticket from Oberhausen to Amsterdam.

Maybe you should check in advance if it's cheaper to buy a saver fare ticket from Munich to Amsterdam instead of using a journey from the summer ticket (24 EUR) and a Flexpreis from Oberhausen to Amsterdam (51 EUR without BahnCard reduction).

The transfer is possible without using a second journey of the summer ticket.

But the summer ticket is not valid in foreign countrys, in your case it would be only possible to use it until the last german station Oberhausen Hbf. You need a seperate ticket from Oberhausen to Amsterdam.

Thank you very much

But the ICE250 is travelling from Köln Hbf to Amsterdam Centraal without any transfer, so I need to buy ticket in advance from Oberhausen to Amsterdam, right?
